A Classic French Film
Jean Vigo was 28 years old in 1933. He died the next year, a short time after "L'Atalante" had been released. I had never seen "Zéro de conduite" before. The subject is the tough life in a boarding school. A controversial subject and innovative cinematography - described as "poetic realism" in Wikipedia. A film to see several times, and find new aspects and details every time, including quotes from this film in other films. Thanks for uploading it, and in a fine copy that can be burned to a DVD.
